Lincoln Man Seriously Injured After Pursuit Leads to Crash

Posted: Updated:
GEORGETOWN, Del.- Delaware State Police say a Lincoln man who led troopers on a short pursuit north of Georgetown was seriously injured after the SUV he was driving went off the road and crashed.

Police said the incident happened at around 1 a.m. Tuesday as a trooper saw a vehicle speeding down the southbound lanes of DuPont Boulevard. Police said the trooper was able to catch up to the SUV in the area of McColleys Chapel Road. After activating the emergency equipment in the patrol car, police said the vehicle failed to stop and continued speeding away.
 
Police said that as the 1997 Mercury Mountaineer turned westbound on Wilson Hill Road and as it was attempting to negotiate a sharp curve to the right, just east of State Forest Road, the vehicle went off the south side of the roadway and began rolling over multiple times before coming to a stop in a cornfield.
 
The driver, who police say was later identified as Jerry N. Evans, 43 of Lincoln, was not properly restrained and was ejected from the vehicle, according to police. He was airlifted by Delaware State Police Aviation to Christiana Medical Center where he was admitted in serious condition.
 
Wilson Hill Road was closed for three and a half hours as the crash was investigated and cleared. Troopers said the DSP Collision Reconstruction Unit is continuing the investigation into this incident. They also said alcohol and drugs are believed to be factors and charges are pending.
